At its May 2016 meeting, PSI’s World Women’s Committee (WOC) agreed that a high priority area of work is workplace violence in the health sector. The WOC also agreed that the experiences of affiliates in raising awareness and developing campaigns and actions to eliminate workplace violence will contribute to the discussions and preparation for developing an ILO standard (convention and recommendations) on violence against women and men at work. This video of interviews is part of the case study on the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Asociación Sindical de Profesionales de Salud de la Provincia de Buenos Aires (CICOP) is an affiliate  of the Federación Sindical de Profesionales de la Salud (FESPROSA), Argentina. FESPROSA is a trade union federation of health professionals, founded in 2005, bringing together health professionals from 23 provinces in Argentina (approximately 30, 000 members). Almost 60% of the organisation’s members are women.
